If these sentient beings [those plunged into the depths of
samsara's sufferings] hear the name of the Lord Master of
Healing, the Lapis Lazuli Radiance Tathagata, and with
utmost sincerity accept it and hold on to it, and no doubts
arise, then they will not fall into a woesome path.
The Medicine Buddha is believed to be a transformation of Shakyamuni Buddha, who manifested as the Medicine Buddha in order to give the medicine teaching to the fourfold assembly of Hindu gods, rishi-sages, bodhisattvas, and arhats. The entire assembly during that teaching perceived the world as a pure universe as if actually made of medicine, wherein every substance was found to be healing. In another sutra, the Medicine Buddha had attained perfect enlightenment many eons previously. He vowed that his buddhaverse would be a world of healing and that throughout that buddhaverse, wherever beings suffer from sickness and injury, he would eternally manifest to bring them his healing knowledge. By this account, Shakyamuni, when he gave the medicine teaching, was merely identifying himself with the age-old healing energy of enlightened beings.
